don't have pic
Sorry

It all depends. Traction is a major issue. But I've seen a SVSI viper with well over 1000 HP. It was more like 1100Hp and 1200 Torque. But even with drag slicks, the traction is a problem. :evillaugh

that's why you put some massive tires on it, somethin like a 755/20/R24 would be hair raising, or more like front end raising;)

Are you serious?
I thought those types of tires were only available for hummers or military vehicles!
except, it would be a bit thicker, not 20...

hehehe, um....i was just kiddin bout that but actually 20 would be quite a thick sidewall

755 mm wide, compared to the stock vipers 335
20% of 755 is 151 mm which is somewhere around 6 inches so actually that's plenty big for the sidewall, so go with like a 10 percent aspect ratio, and a 24 inch rim would make somewhere around like a, well pretty damn big tire, wide as hell too, so with that the 800TT/1000TT and the SVS TT would be runnin like 7.5 1/4's almost, maybe. hell at that go with a 5 percent aspect ratio and you'd have a 1 and a half thick inch sidewall, but when they are that wide, they'd be just plain ugly as far as they'd stick out, no body kit could make them look good, unless you were somehow able to shorten up the halfshafts, well screw that, them things will just twist as Viper 10 has said. so just go to a solid rear axle and make it narrow enough so that them 755 wouldn't stick out,...hmmm.....i should stop thinkin about now or i'll be goin on and on and on

Viper engines can handle extreme amounts of horse power, there are nitruos systems that add 350hp and torque to a stock viper, SVSI, Doug Levin and Hennessey e.t.c all build 1000+++ rear-wheel horse power daily driven Vipers that have no reliability problems and run on pump gas.


Heres the newest and most powerful street viper in the works @ SVSI (also pictures of the Viper engines you wanted) Its the SVSI Rocket Sled Packadge, 1700 REAR WHEEL HORSE POWER AND TORQUE!!!!!!

1700hp?!?! that's just insane.

This here is one of Doug Levin's Stage IV engine, I think.

Hennessy 800TT, looks quite basic compared to Doug Levin's.

I do have respect for Hennessy for his knowledge and work on cars, but I lose all the respect for what a crook he is.

SVS SC Stage I, Stage II looks the same, just more boost.

They might as well make a stiff rear end for the Vipers with these packages. Thats just too much power to be playing around with independent suspension. 1700 hp, thats a drag racer not a track car.

Yea, very true. Instead of that quick change gear one that Viper10 has showed, I'd rather have them just have one where you could rip the normal suspension out and put the live axle in there. Maybe SVS should be doing that for drag racing applications, they should just do that with that 1700 hp monster.

Actully I would think that too, because what good is a 1700hp track car? But SVSI wants to have a street legal car go at least 300mph, which I hear is harder with a solid axle because of heat and relase problems.
Anyway 1700hp has to be insane, on viperclub.org, a guy has a yellow rt-10 thats Doug Levin Supercharged putting out 1001hp and he can smoke his tires at 120-140 in 4th gear! This car would certainly take some getting used to driving. Im looking for a high horse power packadge for my 99, I was set on Hennessey's Venom 1000, but with all the recent heat, im fearing this packadge could be the one. I wonder if SVSI can work in a nitrous/propane deal, 2100hp would be nice :devil:


While were at it here's the pics of the 1700hp beast.
Can anyone guess what size turbos those are?

sorry but 1700 hp is crazy and toally insane

nobody can handle that car.
it maybe really really good on a 1/4 mile but not more.
nothing for a racetrack like the nurburgring ;)

DeViL

Probably not even good at the 1/4 mile. All that hp and no stiff rear suspension, what a waste of money.

Yes, the engine can handle 850HP, but can the poor little tires.

It almost looks like a set of Twin T-88 H's. SVSI says they use Garrett's and as far as I know that is as big as they come from them. One Garrett 88H on a six cylinder can put out 1000-1300 hp so I'm sure it would be nothing for two of them to put out 1700 in a 10 cylinder. It'll probably run on about 20 pounds of boost so you may need race gas for it.

there was a buildup site for some guys Fbody, in which he was talking about the T-100 turbo that was going in. I saved the picture on my computer at home so ill post it up when i get there. it was like twice as tall as the mtn dew can next to it:eek:

You are dreaming... The chassis turns to spaghetti with that HP. There are guys out there with this and more, but their cars pull to the left under hard throttle, and they fight you like crazy trying to get down a 1/4 mile.

The car need serious frame stiffening and suspension mods, or the car will punish and bite you.

well for starters, the viper itself cost like 100g. ( i think, not too sure ). then the engine conversion cost 55g.

To the gentleman who made this statement;

"You are dreaming... The chassis turns to spaghetti with that HP"

I do not want to be rude, however you are incorrect. I run a highly modified ACR at most California road tracks. The car has been tracked for two years without any suspension issues.

If you have heard of this issue happening from VCA types, I would like to talk to those Viper owners. Please pass any info you have on this issue.
